Pears are one of the most popular fruits in the world! They are a great source of fiber and a good source of vitamin C. Plus, they're a great snack with only 100 calories per serving. When shopping for pears, look for a pear that is firm. The pear should have a smooth skin that is free of bruises or mold.

You can use them for recipes for every single meal of the day!
